By now we trust you’ve read the novel of a 450 shootout penned by Scott Rousseau, Editor-in-Chief of our sister site,, comparing the Honda CRF450R, Husqvarna FC450, Kawasaki KX450F, KTM 450 SX-F, Suzuki RM-Z450, and Yamaha YZ450F. It’s definitely a lengthy read, but Rousseau packs it full of information suitable for the MX veteran and noob alike. And in case reading isn’t your thing, the accompanying video provided in the link above is both informative and entertaining (though you’ll still have to read the test to see our winner).

But we’re curious to know what you think. So we ask…

    The KTM 450 SX-F is obviously a winner.

      No doubt it’s a great bike but I’m not taking off an entire day every time I have to drive across the state to get to the dealership.

        People still go to dealerships? I go to Rocky Mountain ATV, order parts and gear, and they arrive at my house. Have not been to a dealer in years.

          Last time I bought a bike I had to go to the dealership. When I needed warranty work, same thing.
